"I would recommend this book to the readership of the Journal, because it deals with important issues that face those in our profession in a reasonably comprehensive way." (Canadian Journal of Neurological Sciences, 1 July 2011) "This book is a splendid receipe for survival, crammed with highly-detailed solutions in a practical, light-hearted presentation." (RoSPA Occupational Safety & Health Journal, 1 July 2011) "This self-help book small in size, certainly considering that it should be manageable for a busy doctor. The presentation is perceived to some extent influenced school book, with sandwiches lists of complaints or actions... but it points to both organizational and individual factors that are important to be aware of and that in many cases can be dealt with to get a better workday." (Journal of the Norwegian Medical Association, 18 November 2010)
